Update: This Danelectro pedal has changed my life. I'm spanking riffs I never would have tried because it just sounds so chewy it's hard to resist. I can't find a bad setting. Everything sounds epic. The volume boost is enormous, so much room. And the grunginess of the settings is never OTT. Just a gradual step up to dirtier and dirtier. I haven't really cranked the amp with it on its filthiest setting because I want to retain my hearing. But I can't even begin to imagine how that would sound. Thanks again for all the help and terrific suggestions. And special thanks to Blowtorch for the suggestion. This pedal is magic.
